I was tempted to post a Shuttlecock XXXI: The Death of Shuttlecock? thread if I didn't see anything by tonight.

In other news, it's sometimes hard to believe how tone-deaf some people can be to how they come across.

Ha! No kidding.

I almost disowned my mom last night on Facebook, over my comment about those protestors shouting out racial/homophobic epithets at the congressmen.

Apparently that's just the same thing as the people calling Bush an evil idiot! Or something.

I emailed her later to say "I love you mom, but this is why I'm upset ..." I mean, is it so hard to say "Gosh, that was a bad thing to say" rather than having a knee-jerk defense of them? I mean, HOLY SHIT

I don't want to talk politics on Facebook, but since I wasn't actually talking about health care, I thought it was a safe bet.

It makes me giggle whenever you call Romney "Mittens" in FYM.

I'm assuming I don't follow this because I AM BLOCKING STRONGBOW!

It's an incredibly liberating feeling, actually.

i've found that because his posts are usually a short story (and about as fictional), just seeing all of those paragraphs are enough of an ignore function for me.

I'm not self-loathing enough at this point to allow myself to discuss politics online.

It's a sure fire way to fill with rage and hate.

Don't hate me because I'm reasonably attractive going to see Muse!

Good news: My mom doesn't think it's okay to shout racial epithets at people.

Bad news: She said they replayed the tape over and over on Fox, and no one could hear anyone shouting it.

Thank god Fox News is here to resolve these debates for us.

Dear U2.com, I know my membership is expiring. No, I'm not going to spend $40 for a compilation of the many shitty remixes of Shuttlecock songs out there. Please stop sending me reminder emails on a daily basis.

I've been getting them too. I think I have 3 reminder emails, all with exactly the same wording (your membership expires in 7 days, blah blah blah blah...), even though my membership must have expired weeks ago.

At least you get emails from u2.com. I get nothing. Though I did get my CD a couple of weeks ago

True. But sending 3 emails reminding/begging me to renew my subscription? That seems a bit desperate and excessive.
